The NEXT! VOX-11, the MAM VF-11, and the FAT PCP330 are all the same 
machine. MAM is the parent, NEXT! and FAT are making the machine under license.

The VC-10 is lesser in quality (intelligibility) than the VF-11.

"The real thing"? What do you consider the real thing? An EMS 5000?

I also hear that the Doepfer A100 module is good. And there's the old VP330 
from Roland...
